journal and government executive for inviting me to this year's a cyber security summit because i can think of no more urgent topic in today's interconnected world. the cyber domain is woven into the fabric of our daily lives. while this increased productivity has led to significant transformations and advances across our country and around the world, it has increased the importance. the flip side of all the good that comes from the internet is that cyber attacks have increased over the next decade. here is a quick sense of scale. last year, u.s. computer emergency readiness team that surprise -- provides response for the federal civilian part of of the partners, last year, the u.s. responded to more than 106,000 incident reports and released more than 5000 actionable cyber security alerts. specialized teams for vulnerable and industrial systems. the words cyber security encompasses a broad range of malicious activity from the nile of service attacks to the theft of intellectual property to intrusions' against the government that works. last year, a water plant for a small town in tex
states as well. i have a jobs plan. we need to back government away from small business, need to have government reduce regulations that are such a burden on businesses so they can create jobs. we need to reform the tax code. we need to reduce energy costs. we need to help small businesses to create those opportunities. >> senator kerrey, you have 30 seconds. >> senator fischer signed a pledge that would require you should pay the same taxes employees pay. under your balanced budget, unemployment would double. i have examined the amendment, and it would double unemployment. >> i disagree. with regard to the buffet rule, if you are going to tax every millionaire, that can run the government for 17 hours. let's look for businesses to create jobs and make opportunities in the state, and we can do it by reducing regulations, by having an energy plan, by repealing "obamacare." >> the next question. >> a question in this cycle is, are we better at today than we were four years ago? are we? >> no, we are not better off with our economy, with our position in the world. we have seen a failure
america. i say it's because of the pills of stimulus, a massive government spending, and heavy regulation simply has not produced a robust economy which would raise the middle glass. it's subdued the middle class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four years, and this big debate between the two sides is whether it was, the bush policies, that preceded that president obama that was a major contributing factor or is-- a the romney campaign is trying to argue with the stimulus measures and other steps that the obama administration took. >> well, congressman, what is going to get us out of it? do you think that of continued policy of raising taxes on the rich, that's the policy. a continued regulation, under obamacare, and financial reform, continued regulation,
wants to have government investing for us. he wants to hire more government workers. he wants to raise taxes, as the vice-president biden blurted out today, they want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, or more like $2 trillion by our calculation. he has laid out the same policies he has been following the last four years. i don't think that sells very well when people hear that. he also didn't have the chance to continue to misrepresent my views. i got the chance to present my own perspectives. and i think that helped me. >> sean: do you think to some extent that the obama campaign has overreached by calling you a tax cheat and attacking bain capital and even suggesting that you were responsible for the death of this man's wife, et cetera, et cetera, they spent millions and millions of dollars advancing a narrative against you, you know, the president himself saying that your plan is for dirty air and dirty water and you want kids with autism and the elderly to fend for themselves. to some extent do you think that by over reaching and when people saw you side by side that that partl
upheaval of some kind. i'm not sure, but neither party can govern and that low of and approve or rating without something happening sizable. i think the other thing is that this fiscal cliff, and i know we will be talking about it, it dominates the news, i do not know how we avoid it, but i think it is conscionable that the markets will start to react -- possible the the markets will react if we start to see sequestration, the bush tax cuts, the debt limit, all of these things that go to make up the fiscal cliff, i think there is a realization about the damage it could do to america's economy. it may force section on the part of the congress and the president -- force action on the part of the congress and the president. this is the most clear campaign i have observed. i still believe there is going to be a strong motivation of us, for a variety of motivations, maybe not all good or all bad, to try to resolve this issue for the sake of the country. maybe i am digging for the pony, but i believe that that has got to happen. there is ample pressure. i will say that this majority leader ac
debates later on. maybe you two can negotiate that. if you cut government benefits -- a secretly recorded video of mitt romney at a private fund- raiser was made public -- let's take a look. >> 47% of the people -- who will vote for the president a matter what. who believe the government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they are entitled to health care and food and housing, you name it. that is an entitlement. >> texas -- in 2010, 30.5% of texans filing era -- return paid no income tax. there is no data on how many texans get government assistance, but the census bureau found 24% get social security. 20 -- 14% did retirement income. 5% disability bed -- benefits and 14% from strands. mr. cruz, do you believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power
in changing our policy in afghanistan to count terrorism. we're trying to prop up a government in afghanistan. couldn't terrorism requires far less troops and focuses at striking against al qaeda sweledl as well as any taliban insurjents we might need for the purpose of our fight. i believe that the draw down in afghanistan is well positioned. i'm actually an advocate of something that is more accelerated. i have been for quite some time and i believe we focus on couldn't terrorism which risks less lives. >> we're going to go back on the economy. you say you support a comprehensive solution to the deficit that includes revenues and cuts in spending. can you name one program you've eliminated while you've been in congress? >> yes the s 22. i voted this is something the pentagon did not want but there were those advocating for it. i voted against the s22 which was cut by the way. i voted on a different alternative fighter engine that was not necessary as well and that was cut. and those are examples of programs that were cut. but whey don't want to do is what my opponent says he embraces the ry
on the government and victims and who he would never be able to reach because he would not be able to purr suede them to take responsibility for their lives. >> i'll never convince 47% of the country to take personal responsibility and care for their lives. those comments he describes his disdain for half the country, those comments have had a measurable impact on the campaign. in the new poll just released in the last couple hours, people say those remarks from mr. romney made them feel more negative than positive toward mr. romney by a 22-point margin. those results match other polling that shows those comments alienated undecided voters. regardless of what you think of the substance of that it statement from mr. romney, it did turn the whole republican pundit class against him, called every candidate in a contested race to distance themselves from the presidential nominee of their party to start campaigning against mitt romney, telling voters, listen, i don't like that guy on that issue either, but vote for me any way even though i'm a republican. whether or not you think the remarks were sca
who are not in the government, it's incumbent on us to continue to encourage cooperation inside and outside. all of us have thoughts and suggestions to offer and some have technological expertise to land or policy expertise as well but it doesn't have to be done internally and it's terrifying when the government says we are here to help you. we are from the transparency community. we are here to help house well. with that i would like to thank all of the panelists. i would like to thank representative fisa and -- issa and quigly. please visit transparentycaucess for the next event and thank you all so much. [applause] i want to raise an issue that has been for two or three weeks specifically on the national security terms. you already are the oldest president in history and some of your staff say you were tired after your most recent encounter with mr. mondale. i recall president kennedy had to go days on end with bear minimum sleep during the cuban missile crisis. is there any doubt in your mind you would be able to function in such circumstances? >> not at all. i want you to k
with the social media. it is fair to say that the chinese government said several times in a press conference and to foreign delegates that vice- president shi was injured in his back. i think that is enough. more importantly, i was interviewed many times by the media. i say i do not want to comment. there is nothing happening. they would cancel their trip. the police and the military would react unusual. there is no sign whatsoever. it seems like it is very odd that the chinese government is not famous for transparency. they sometimes want to cover things. but also ironically because of the vulnerability that doctor kissinger mention, they face a lot of challenges. for this problem, a successor is in big trouble. they were immediately announced -- you cannot cover. it is a huge liability and would cause further damage for the political system. no leader will be able to do that. usually they will reveal to the public within 12 hours. this is my take. this should be a lesson for us. i'm not defending the chinese government. china needs to follow to be responsible. he is already paralyzed and c
, a governing and the economy. the moderator will open the segment with a question, then candidates will each have two minutes to respond. at the end, it romney in the president will have two-minute closing statements. live debate coverage tonight starts at 7:00 eastern with a preview. at the the debate, we will get your reaction with emails and tweets. all of that here at c-span. a quick look at previous presidential debates. george w. bush and al gore in 2000. >> by agreement, between the candidates, the first question goes to the governor. you have two minutes to respond. kitty was raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer? no, i do not. i think you know i have not favored the death penalty my entire life. it is one of the reasons we have the biggest drop in crime in any industrial state of america and the lowest murder rates. we have work to do in this nation. we of work to do to fight a real war, not a phoney war against drugs. that is something i want to leave it. -- to lead. even though the vice president has been at least allegedly in charge of th
that investigators had been invited into libya and would be provided protection. whether or not the libyan government could have delivered on that promise, we'll never know. what we do know is no fbi agents are in benghazi, according to our reporter. the crime scene remains unprotected and the official line seems to be everything is going fine with the libyan government and the fbi investigation. as we said, new details tonight. national security analyst fran townsend got some of them. so did cnn contributor bob baer. fran is the former white house homeland security advisor. she recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrew and forbes. bob is a former cia officer with deep experience in the middle east and arab world. also on the phone from tripoli, cnn's reporter. i'm a little surprised, fran, how they can say -- how they are painting what's happening on the ground in libya, especially based on what you're hearing from sources. >> look, anderson, we have not -- this is not the first international terrorism investigation regrettably going back to the east africa embassy bombings in the late
. early last year mr. quinn floated the idea that the federal government could bail out, that is the federal government, you, could bail out his state's pension program if illinois' finances took a turn for the worse. critics are pouncing saying states cannot give away big benefit packages and then expect the federal taxpayer to come to the rescue. "the chicago tribune" says the stampede of other states with pension red ink could lead to a federal taxpayer bill of over $2 trillion. that's with a t, and let me tell you, folks, that's just one estimate. others put it between 1 trillion and 25 trillion that we could potentially get to. lou dobbs is host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network, he's also a syndicated radio host. so governor quinn in illinois can't figure out how to get himself out of these pensions that they've overpromised and feel like they're going to have to underdeliver on, and he's considering making the rest of us pay for them? [laughter] >> he's considering, he's hoping, he's begging, he's wishing. the fact of the matter is governor quinn
candidate obama veers off from his prepared remarks and accuses the u.s. government of short-changing hurricane katrina victims in new orleans. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act mony? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> greta: and now, former vice-presidential candidate, sarah palin, posting her response on facebook to the video. many of you have seen theuent 07 speech in which then senator obama suggested that because of racism, the federal government didn't waive the stafford act to assist new orleans after katrina. 10 days before senator obama gave this speech, the federal government did in fact waive the stafford act for new orleans. and to add insult to injury, barack obama was one of 14 senators who voted against the bill that, included the provision to give supplemental emergency assistance to new orleans of he was being dishonest and divisive, which we have seen far too often from him in the last four year
about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes on the american people and that will kill jobs. we want to create jobs and not kill jobs in this country. [applause] we also heard this plan are raising taxes and cutting medicare. in fact, there has been a study released this week. the people look at his spending plans and all of the debt they create and interest that its charge. he will raise taxes on the middle class as well by some $4,000 per family. the american people do not want more taxes. they want less spending and more growth. we will do that and get america back on a balanced budget. [applause] i do not want to raise taxes on any one. this president seems to think that keeping our taxes the same as they are now is a huge tax cut. only in washington would do thing keeping taxes as they are is a huge tax cut. hot i will find a way to bring our taxes down -- i will find a way to bring down our taxes. we will give the middle class a tax break. [cheers and appla
of europe. france's new socialist government unveiling plans for a 75% super tax. stuart varney host of "varney & company", fox business network. glad you're happy you left 35 years ago. what's up? >> germany is telling france hey, you got to get that budget deficit under control, big budget deficit is verboten the socialist president of france, francois hollande, tax the rich, not so rich, capital gains, profits, you name it, there will be a big new tax. on upper end of income every dollar over a certain level the french government will take 75 cents. rip it right out of your hand. 75 cents on the dollar. more than $200,000, they take 45 cents on the dollar, almost half. bill, this is a massive gamble because france's economy is dead flat, teetering on recession. 10-year high for unemployment and france puts in place huge tax increases. bill: i'm reading the two measures bringing around half a billion euros. >> that's it. >> what will that do for them? >> not much. there are other taxes as well which will bring in a total they think of 20 billion euros. bill: higher tax rates on div
,000 in health care and social services and another 10,000 in government employment. the private sector didn't show robust jobs growth in month. i want to underscore in the spirit of bipartisan agreement among economists, i can't accept that bls would cook numbers. the only thing worse you could do is say my mother didn't love me. >> we can't quantify that, can we? >> well said. >> jared, so the next time we meet for a jobs report friday it will be the friday before election day. anything that you can pull from trends that you see or from this report that gives us any hint what might be in the next jobs report? >> look, i think there's -- as i mentioned, i think there's a bit of momentum here, but i don't think we're seeing a job market that's anywhere near full employment. i expect us to continue to make slow progress. next month will probably be too late for people to change political perceptions about the job market by the time the number comes out. what the president can and will say is that the kind of report he got today supports his narrative we're moving in the right direction, perha
of this government right now is to shut this down. is that a bad thing for the country to do? to cut shut down shale oil production? >> i think what we've seen is a turning here over the last several years, and the obama administration, i mean, last night, he, you know, said oil and gas increased under my watch, which is true, a lot is private initiative, so i think the administration, because of the job aspect of it, because of the economic development aspect, because of what it does to american competitiveness, he's come around to a position to be broadly supportive, differently from romney, but in a way that, you know, some of it -- their own supporters of the administration haven't liked. i mean there's clear differences like the keystone pipeline one area of a very sharp difference. gerri: i want to bring up green energy for a second, spending $90 billion on companies. these a taxpayer dollars, not private sector dollars. is it worth it? >> i think that when you look at the growth that's going to be out there in terms of energy demand, it makes sense to diversify. i think the lesson of the last
been raising alarm bells at the time. >> members of the government reform committee claimed multiple pleas were denied by the u.s. government. they sent a letter to hillary clinton demanding answers. they are also hearing next week. jason will be joining fox and friends today at 8:50. you will want to hear that one. it is time for the first degree weather update from maria molina who has a look at this. >> looking good at the part of the eastern see board a little on the muggy side we are dealing with fog across the area because we have a storm system that is a slow mover continuing to push eastward are lingering showers. that's what we are going to be talking about across the entire eastern sea board. 75 over raleigh 63 over new york city. otherwise you can see lingering some drizzle out across up state new york down into parts of pennsylvania. we are going to continue to see the showers and storms through out the day today across portions of the northeast parts of the carolinas down to the state of florida. a lot heavier if you head southbound into the state of florida. quiet out o
's presence. they think tice was being detained in august but the government has not acknowledged it. happening in frib, gunmen opened fire on a university in northeastern nigeria. 20 people are now dead. no one has claimed responsibility for the attack but it happened in an area that's been a targeted by islamic militants. we are deeply sorry for what happened. that is the response from ikea. the swedish retail giant came under criticism for intentionally removing photos of women in catalogs that were shipped to saudi arabia. the company is investigating why these photos were omitted in the first place. saudi arabia does not prohibit the presence of women in marketing materials. and hong kong, 38 people are dead in the territory's deadliest maritime accident in decades. a passenger ferry collided with another boat last night off of lamma. police have arrested seven screw members from the boats and rescue crews are still looking for survivors. >> reporter: a night of celebration turned to tragedy as water rushed in through the boat's hull. >> translator: the boat was standing straigh
worried are you? >> i am very worried. my friends who are working for the government and contributing and supporting the military don't know what the future is for themselves. they are supporting our special operators on the very edge of battle and watching all of the conversation about defense spending cuts and they are just worried about how to protect themselves. >> brian: i see that good looking guy behind you. what have you done in the last 10 years? >> i recently retired and finished up as sergeant of the task force and special operations and i returned to afghanistan as an advisor for petraeus. >> brian: look at that picture to the right. that looks follow. go ahead. >> right behind me besides the bad mustache. we are training th new iraqi counter terrorism force. >> brian: that was you in bin laden's compound. where they did the famous going through the monkey bars and everything. this is just there. >> what you see there, remember all of the jihadi videos and they popumm out of the ground. that ring i have was made from the mine which bin laden was mining to sponsor terrorism
've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. >>> developing right now, republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan is taking new aim at president obama's handling of the war in afghanistan. in fact, ryan just spoke a couple hours ago to laura engram on her radio show. >>> those are new comments from congressman ryan a couple house ago. in a new interview the u.s. commander in afghanistan says he's outraged by the recent surge and insider attacks. >> i'm mad as hell about them to be honest with you. we're going
-minute showdown at the university of denver. the platform gave govern romney an opportunity to reignite his campaign which has suffered some this summer. they sparred across a range of issues. >> there's a various done of small businesses across the country saying what's the effect of obamacare in your hiring plans. three quarters said it makes us less likely to hire people. i just don't know how the president could come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment and economic crises at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well, in massachusetts. because govern romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model, and as a consequence, people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs. when govern romney stood on the stage with other republican candidates for the nomination, and he was asked, would you take $10 of spending cuts for just $1 of r
